Tecnatom Group celebrates its 60th anniversary this year; six decades in which it has
been working on systems and Non-Destructive Testing techniques, and developing several
own inspection systems currently distributed worldwide.
Madrid, March 13th 2017.- Tecnatom Group is attending JEC World, the largest international
gathering of composites professionals, which takes place from 14 to 16 March at the Paris
Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center. The objective of JEC World is to explore how composites
respond to the challenges of our century: environment, sustainability, Industry 4.0., innovation,
prospective, knowledge and trends.
Tecnatom Group, together with its French subsidiary M2M, presents its technological
developments for the aerospace industry (booth L66), especially in the field of inspection
systems, non-destructive testing and control engineering. Visitors will meet some of the
automated inspection solutions of the Spanish multinational, such as its new semi-automatic
3D portable arm, which bases the applicability of 3D commercial measuring arms on manual
inspections by Ultrasonic (UT), Eddy Current, Visual (VI) or other non-destructive testing.
This system provides the flexibility of manual inspection and allows recording of coordinates
on pieces of complex geometry, without the need to use more sophisticated and more
expensive robotic systems.
Tecnatom also includes its GEOID software in its product portfolio, which solves the problems
of identification and control of the positioning of the parts for inspection, avoiding possible
damages. The application allows checking, in an automated mode, if the installed part to be
inspected is the correct one according to the inspection plan, If this is not the case, the
application prevents the inspection until the piece is correctly positioned, thus avoiding delays,
unwanted checks, and mistakes that can lead in some cases to damage or even destruction of
the piece under inspection, or the inspection system itself.
The Wireless Positioning Inspection System (WiiPA), an innovative manual inspection system
intended to provide a low-budget solution to some NDT applications traditionally addressed to
high-end and costly automated systems: testing of large and/or complex geometry components.
To achieve this, WiiPA integrates two state-of-the-art technologies: artificial vision positioning
and 3D inspection software, with highly competitive advantages but at the same time it saves
costs for the customer.
At JEC World Tecnatom shows this wide variety of systems and applications that seek to meet
aerospace industry requirements: reducing time and costs in manufacturing processes, as well
as automation and improving safety.
Tecnatom is a Spanish multinational engineering, present in 32 countries with over 50 years of
experience in NDT. The company develops its own state-of-the-art technology in ultrasonic
inspection that is permanently updated and improved through R&D. Tecnatom Group has
established itself as a leading company in supplying inspection systems, equipment and
services mainly based on ultrasonic, Eddy current, thermography and other NDT techniques in
nuclear and aviation industry, among other markets.
Tecnatom Group has managed to position itself as a benchmark company in the supply of
inspection systems, providing its technology to Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier and Embraer, the
big four western aerospace companies, in addition to the Russian United Aircraft Corporation
(UAC) and the Asian COMAC. In addition to these major manufacturers Tecnatom systems are
found in many others Tier 1 and Tier 2, on four continents.
Tecnatom celebrates its 60th anniversary this year.
